    Have to tell you this.....couldn't believe it!

    My tenant complained to me last night that the property she rents from me is haunted. I personally don't believe in ghosts, I think its in her imagination but I don't understand exactly why she is complaining to me about it and what she expects me to do about it. Apparently I should have informed her about a ghost before she took tenancy!

    I researched the history of the property before I bought it a few years ago but how was I meant to know it was haunted??

    I'm going to tell her I'm not responsible for ghosts as they are not listed on the itinerary and is therefore a free extra and if she wants to get the Ghostbusters round she can do that at her own expense!

    what a fantastic story - I haven't had that particular one before!
    Can you charge her extra for the ghost? Brilliant!

      Only if you have it inspectred; then the rent can be wraithed (and you'll have them by the ghoulies).

        Train a whole gang of owls to fly in through the window to deliver your letters to her. That'll really freak her out.

        (Can't remember the collective noun for owls, but anyone who can, wins the dead rat left over from the last competition - see 'Surprising things done by tenants' thread)

          We were concerned about this when moving to an old house with my then 8 year old step-son. We produced a Ghost busters certificate for him stating that no ghost activity had been found! - Worked a treat!

          Not sure what you can do about a real ghost or phsycic / pshychotic tenant though! Perhaps call a priest in or suggest the T calls the priest?

            Maybe you need an exorcist!

                  To be fair I thought her complaint fell a bit outside my obligations as a Landlord considering she doesnt abide by many of her obligations as a tenant.

                  I honestly think she just likes to complain about anything. I mean she's complained when certain things need maintenance but then also complains if she is distrubed when I send a workman round to attend to it!

                      Tell her it's the ghost of a previous tenant who did not abide by their AST who has come to warn her.....

                              Perhaps her eye is a capital I (unlike all yours)?

                                I worked in McDonalds and various pubs while doing my A Levels/taking my gap year.

                                I still eat in McDonalds (and drink in various pubs, although not the ones I worked in!).

                                Today's big news revealed 408 cases of acid attack and disfigurement of the face since Nov 2016.

                                Victims can be scarred for life and suffer huge loss of earning during the remainder of their life.

                                I agree.

                                It doesn't require any change in the law to achieve that, though.
                                Being scarred by acid is the same as being scarred with any weapon (if quicker).

                                If the victim suffers life time scarring , its fitting for the attacker to be given life time imprisonment.

                                I would have put it at GBH with intent which is worse....Corbyn would probably give them a pat on the back and tell them not to be naughty!

                                The maximum sentence for GBH (which is what an acid attack would be if "successful") is life imprisonment.
                                The sentencing guidelines would allow that sentence.

                                It makes the stupid posturing by the Home Secretary just look embarrassing.
